New Amy Butler Fabric Pleated Bag

I love this Amy Butler fabric so when I saw it I just had to get it.  The bag has 4 internal pockets, a magnetic closure and the lining is made with the sunspots fabric the same as the handles.  I really love this one.    I was going to put it on Folksy but my good friend Sandra loved it so much I couldnt resist giving her it.  Needless to say it was well received!

On a non sewing related note we have bought another house - yay!  We move in in about 5 weeks and I cannot wait.  Its in the country and I can have a craft room!

Hope you are all well.   Dont forget to enter my giveaway if you havent already!  x

  9. Hi Claire,

    What a beautiful bag! And a beautiful blog too (I just stumbled upon it)!!! :-)

    I LOVE little Pootle!!! What a great character to name your business after!

    I'm quite new to sewing (a year and a half-ish), and I'm very new to blogging (just a few months). So it was really nice to find someone else in a similar spot!

    I'll be back again soon.....


  10. The colours on your bag are lovely. No you're not strange folding and unfolding fabric....I admit to that as well....shhh don't tell anyone tho!!
